    A query for parrot fans out there:

    What are the best US zoos for exhibiting cockatoos? I have seen a palm cockatoo at the Bronx Zoo, red-tailed black cockatoos and Major Mitchell's cockatoos at San Diego Zoo, and galahs, salmon-crested, and suphur-crested cockatoos at the Fresno Zoo.

    Are there any zoos out there that exhibit several species of cockatoos?

    Any info will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    American zoos with huge bird collections include San Diego, San Antonio, Bronx and Houston, amongst others. Also, Baton Rouge Zoo in Louisiana has a number of parrots, macaws and cockatoos in basic corn crib cages.
